Retired Army Warrant Officer, Anthony Radetic (Rad Man), has always had a zest for life. Prior to a 2004 motor vehicle crash which cost him the use of his legs, he piloted a Blackhawk Helicopter. Through the encouragement of the VA, he became involved in its National Rehabilitative Special Events and now he pilots Sea-Doo personal watercraft.
Radetic is an elite challenged athlete and rides for the BRP Sea-Doo X-Team. He loves to go fast and riding a Sea-Doo. The Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 affords him the opportunity. He doesn’t spend much time in his wheelchair because he is driven to compete and above all else, live. Check out this video, “One Fun Day.” You’ll see him race at blistering speeds! From wheelchair to water, Radetic races hard on his Sea-Doo and is an inspiration for not only the Sea-Doo team, but the rest of the watercraft community as well.
Radetic and his family enjoy traveling together and it comes shining through in the video. He has come a long way since his injury and Sea-Doo is proud to have him on its team and he is stoked to have their support. He recently moved from amateur to pro watercraft racer and has ‘podiumed’ at several international events. At the age of 37, Radetic is just getting started!
